Wonderstruck Enchanted Eau de Parfum, prices start at £19.50.
New-in to my fragrance stocks this month is Taylor Swift‘s second perfume, Wonderstruck Enchanted.
Aptly named after one of my favourite Swift songs, Wonderstruck Enchanted is a sweet yet musky scent that is a perfect follow-up to Taylor’s debut fragrance, Wonderstruck. I’ll try and rein in the fangirling and concentrate on what’s really important…
Wonderstruck Enchanted is a more confident and sensual scent than its predecessor. It is described by the perfumer as captivating, charming and confident, which I can agree with to some extent.
I much prefer it to the original: Wonderstruck Enchanted is less floral and fruity and a little more musky and alluring, whilst retaining the same feminine, ‘younger target customer’ feel.
An irresistible blend of wild berries and sugar-glazed petals with an addictive balance of creamy flowers and sensual woods which blend harmoniously and add an alluring quality to the fragrance. Notes include: wild berries, passionfruit, pink poppy, peony, champaca petals, white freesia, white must, vanilla and blonde woods.Elizabeth Arden
As with Taylor’s last fragrance, Wonderstruck Enchanted is not particularly long-lasting despite being an eau de parfum with a higher concentration of oils. I tend to spritz it on in the morning before work and it has, more often than not, disappeared by lunchtime. I typically don’t carry perfumes around with me – there’s totally room for a travel-sized edition! – so I reserve Wonderstruck Enchanted for quick outings or quiet evening walks.
The fragrance would be well-suited to all ages and every occasion and, again, the bottle is absolutely beautiful in a shimmering iridescent red, strung with a quartet of bronze charms hand-picked by Taylor.
